Marlinin the spread!- Guatemala Iztapa Fishing Report Oct 15, 2015

Great marlin bite in Guatemala right now. As known, summer to fall can produce a very good marlin envirorment. Oct 15th we made it out for a test run on the new bertram, and started fishing just 12 miles as we entered the blue water cut in front of the marina. At about 14 miles, we had our first blue in the spread, we quickly got it hooked up and released on the 50 lb pitch bait. We continued to see 5 more blue throughout the day and just 8 sails, as well as 2 nice bull dorado. Bringing the final blue marlin talley to 2 blues for 3 bites, 5 up. We called it a day at 1pm, back at the dock at 2pm. Cheap date!

There was one other boat off shore 30 miles, who reported the same thing. 5 marlin in the spread, sailfish here and there, dorado here and there. So we can assume its a big area. The blue water is pushing in from El Salvador, and hopefully more fish are coming. Water temps are great, 84-86, perfect & normal. More to come!!
My report for the 15th of Oct.
11-9-8 on Sailfish
5-3-2 Blue Marlin- 300 lb class more or less, tagged and released.
Dorado-2 around 15 lbs each around floating debris.
We are on deck to fish the tournament in El Salvador for the 2nd year in the row. Last year 4th out of 40, and I feel we should have had 2nd. More to come!! If interested in joining, please inquiry.
